ASHRAE teams with Italian organization to promote HVAC projects
ASHRAE and the Associazione Italiana Condizionamento dell’Aria Riscaldamento Refrigerazione (AiCARR) are teaming to strengthen the cooling and heating industries.
The organizations recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) outlining the two groups’ shared commitment toward the promotion of common cooling- and heating-related endeavors, according to a release.
The agreement provides a framework for AiCARR and ASHRAE to collaboratively leverage each other’s strengths and accomplish organizational goals that best serve members, the profession and both societies at large. A new strategy will involve AiCARR and ASHRAE defining mutual services for its respective members in Italy and the U.S., through the establishment of an AiCARR-ASHRAE group.
“AiCARR and ASHRAE have worked jointly for more than 50 years, providing invaluable benefits across industries around the world,” said 2017-2018 ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen.
As part of the agreement, ASHRAE and AiCARR will develop joint training and educational programs in Italy and the U.S., as well as new conferences to accelerate technology dissemination. The MoU additionally places special focus on strengthening the organizations’ global networks, the coordination of research programs and exploring opportunities to collaborate on technical publications and standards.
“The signing of this agreement formally demonstrates AiCARR and ASHRAE’s long-standing commitment to the achievement of a coordinated global sustainability strategy,” said AiCARR President Francesca Romana d’Ambrosio.
